three states in the new south, north carolina, virginia and florida. the six days in the midwest rust belt area are much more heavily white than these other swing states. they are much more slowly changing than the states, for example, in the new south which have a much higher level of minority voters and are changing rapidly. and, of course, the states in the southwest with a minority population particularly among hispanics is shooting up very rapidly and the states have a much more higher proportion of minority voters that are favorable to barack obama. with that in mind let's look at some of the particular swing states that are in play at this point. maybe more so than any other state, ohio seems to be the fulcrum of this election, that it's a state that is very accessible to mitt romney, a state of that obama could hold him and he holds all six of the states in the rust belt midwest area combined with only four electoral states short of victory. so critical for the romney strategy to hold a state of ohio. that's not happening at this point. at this point obama is probably up to ab

, cruisers, aircraft carriers? or are you going to buy attack subs like the virginia class submarine. not clear from this, but a target number 15 ships per year. the third area of difference, and this is a little, the water is more murky on this is afghanistan and the drawdown in afghanistan. the president has set the timeline for 2014, not entirely clear what that means in 2040, how many troops we left in afghanistan. but it seems if anything and obama second from the might be an incentive to accelerate that drawdown, not by the timeline of but move the floor lower so that we drop to a lower number of troops in afghanistan for 2014 and beyond. i haven't seen any state policy in this but i think that is the inclination right now. romney has criticized the plan, you know, setting the data 2014 and the fact that we are already starting to draw down forces in afghanistan today. that implies an that romney would slow the drawdown. i haven't seen any specifics about what he would do. and, of course, the obama campaign is quick to mention that romney didn't mention afghanistan at all durin

's going on in virginia right now. really extreme measures that we didn't see before but it's part of a cultural revolution that is going on with regard to the republicans and the koch brothers and everybody else, to say that they want to change america back. and basically what we're getting down to is that's the choice that's going to happen on november 6. this is coming down to almost a cultural choice. this is more than mitt romney versus, you know, barack obama. this is becoming almost cultural. it's a cultural change is the type of changes they want to make in this country. and i think it's extraordinary that we see this going on today. it's amazing that we see what's going on with the attacks on labor. let me say why the attacking labor. the right wing believes and knows that labor is the backbone of the democratic party, the backbone of the progressive movement. we have basically the ones that back, the hour of the eight hour day. all the basic reforms would take for granted were passed by organized labor going back 50 years, 100 years. we are the backbone and we still are t

that very well. >> host: paul in richmond, virginia e-mailed me, and he would like to ask what general macarthur had on the 48 election, and if there is any truth to the theory that trumans later firing of the general was based more on his personal animosity towards macarthur, but many fear he represented some sort of threat to civilian control. >> guest: macarthur is, there are four candidates on the gop side. basically. when macarthur's campaign collapses, he has always been controversial, from the 1932 burning of the marchers out there, even as a soldier, some people didn't like the style, other people did -- it is tough to run when you are ruling japan across the ocean, and also any heavy very advanced age, your 73 years old coming your getting used older candidates now. back then, life expectancy was less. truman could be very prickly, so personal animosity could have played a role in that. how much, i would hesitate to say. >> host: next call to david pietrusza comes from portland, oregon. >> caller: hello, how are you. my question is, i really don't think it is an indisputable f
